    2019 Wilson Blade

    Thanks for the tips! There is a lot to like with the 18X20 blade. I spent more time on my serve today. Flat and slice were great and very accurate once I got the timing down. Power was decent but not the "get out of jail" power I can get from a Babolat frame. Kick serve started to come around, I...

    2019 Wilson Blade

    I tried it, I didn't see any of the upsides I'm seeing with the 18x20. Just a softer version of what I've been using (more or less).

    2019 Wilson Blade

    well, good news and bad news. I measured my Wilson blade 18X20 demo. 11.4 ounces 32cm balance 324sw. with Wilson NXT at 55. SW is way too light but it works for me. I love this racquet on Volleys and slice backhands. It's very accurate on ground strokes although a bit linear compared to what I...

    Is the 2019 Pure Aero superior in every way to the 2016 lime?

    FWIW, I find serving and volleying better with the lime but touch and depth control is better with the 2019. At this point, with such an established frame, you aren't going to gain much without losing something. It's about tradeoffs. I have every iteration of the Aero drives/pure aero and it's...

    2019 Wilson Blade

    I played with the Blade in a match and I struggled. Partially because I wasn't fully dialed in on the serve or return. I switched pretty quickly. I felt with the Blade 16X19 I was giving up more than I was gaining compared to my 2019 Pure Aero. The blade was easier on my arm and I could adjust...

    2019 Wilson Blade

    O.K. spent a good three hours at drills hitting with the blade and an Angell tc-97 today. The blade swings really well. I'm impressed with the pop and depth I'm getting but the touch leaves a little to be desired. There is surprisingly some trampoline effect on the ball (NXT at 55). This...

    You are probably right. I'd have to buy the racquet to find out..

    2019 Wilson Blade

    Hi Guys, I finally got to hit with the new blade 16X19 yesterday. It has NXT at 55 in it as do all demos from my local store. Specs are 11.6 ounces, 33cm balance, 335 swing weight. Honestly, it was a strange hit for me. I just came off of demoing the Yonex 97 pro 310 and the Ultra Tour. I liked...

    Prince TT Tour 100 (310) Need your opinions.

    Thinking again about what you said. If you add lead equally 6-12, 3-9 will enlarge it adding in only one spot should move it...right?

    Prince TT Tour 100 (310) Need your opinions.

    I'm not so sure that's true is it? All I can tell you is when I hit with no lead, I feel the pocketing. With lead at 2 and 10 its O.K. and lead at 12, it's higher and my normal hitting spot feel harsh.

    Prince TT Tour 100 (310) Need your opinions.

    Hi Guys, I need your opinions on this and anyone who has specs on their Prince TT 100 (310) would be really helpful. I demoed a TT Tour 100 (310) and decided this would be a good switch from my Pure Strike. It's a little softer and has slightly better touch but pretty similar. The specs on...

    Heavy vs light.

    This is such a hard question to answer as it is so dependent on your preferences. I have a buddy who used to play with the Volkl PB-10 at 12.1 ounces, with a super thin beam etc. A total old school players racquet. He switch to a 104" 10.9 ounce Volkl v-4 just to make it a little easier on...

    Official Wilson Clash thread

    FWIW, I spent the weekend with a ball machine the Clash tour and my favorite racquets from the past. These were the Pure Aero (1st gen), Pure Strike 16X19, and APDO. Some version of the APD has been in my bag for a years so this is going home for me but I felt I needed more feel and control. I...
